System identification techniques to analyse movement disorders are in development, but concrete clinical evidence to receive broad support from the clinical world is lacking. This master thesis proposes two ways to accelerate their development as part of the master’s programmes in Mechanical Engineering and Science Communication. The Mechanical...

Pathological tremor is currently not adequately treated with medication; it is effective in only 50% of cases and often does not supress tremor more than 60% at the cost of mild to severe side effects. In recent years, mechanical tremor suppression concepts have been developed, but none have thus far been implemented as replacements for current...

Amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS) is themost frequent form of motor neuron diseases (MND). This neurodegenerativedisease progresses relentlessly quick. The characteristic feature of ALS is theconcurrent degeneration of the upper and lower motoneurons (UMN & LMN) inthe central and peripheral nervous system. Symptomatic...

Reflexes and co-contraction are the two mechanisms used for effective limb control when humans face unexpected perturbations in their daily activities. When the environment has reduced stability margins, reflexes are tempered due to the oscillations caused by the neural time delay of the reflexive pathways. An explanation is that reflexes adapt...

Autonomous driving is a development that has gained a lot of attention lately, because it can lead to major improvements in the mobility sector. One example of a research project that aims to develop vehicles that are capable of reaching the highest level of autonomy in driving, is the WEpods project. The goal of this research is in line with...

Fascicle shear is theoretically a mechanism by which skeletal muscles lengthen. Existing ultrasound based techniques allow measurement of muscle architecture parameters, but not the quantification of shear strain. In this study, an algorithm that tracks the shear strain from ultrasound images using a continuum representation of the muscle was...

Half of the long-termed disabled stroke survivors experience increased hyper-resistance of the wrist. Discrimination between the two components of joint hyper-resistance, i.e. the neural reflexive and intrinsic tissue component, is important since the components require a different treatment method. To discriminate between the two components,...

The dynamic relation between the displacement and reaction torque of the human joint is known as joint impedance. Properly quantifying joint impedance has medical potential in the diagnosis, understanding and modelling of movement disorders associated with neuromuscular conditions like cerebral palsy, stroke, dystonia and old age. The...

Introduction: During functional electrical stimulation (FES) the onset of muscle fatigue limits the treatment and rehabilitation of patients. In previous work, variable frequency trains (VFT) have been suggested to take advantage of a tension enhancement property in muscle. The varying of other parameters in stimulation trains, such as amplitude...
